  1. Stripers are chomping right now in my parts of Maine. Nothing above 24" but southern Maine is heating up
  2. Thanks man, Fished hard just about everyday since late April. It’s always worth it to know you didn’t waste any of the season waiting at home:)
  3. Hey all, I wont say where but hooked up on four striped bass this afternoon in Maine. All fish caught on top water lures on an incoming tide. Not sure if they video I attached will work but it shows buds still on the trees. The bass are here 18D23DF9-B4D2-484D-BD3C-9650503EBB87.MP4
  4. Live lining Herring is extremely productive when the stripers are keyed in on them early on in the season. Catching the bait is easy and they can yield a productive catch however there a negatives to come with fishing the Herring runs. As drmevo said, fishing the runs often comes with tight spaces and crossed lines, it also comes with pissed off people and an overall unpleasant experience. Use a kayak or small boat to get to the areas other can't. You'll find more success that way...
  5. Hey all, I've been seeing a rather intriguing amount of posts on this platform as well as other regarding stripers that have already been caught in Maine. Seeing these have me confused yet optimistic. Im wondering if anyone can confirm the early arrival of stripers in Maine with any solid evidence ?
  6. I fish Maine waters as well. I live on the southern tip of Maine and as of recently the squid bite has been more inconsistent than ever. Last summer I saw massive amounts of squid during the last week of July. They stayed for a week or so and they all disappeared as fast as they came. As for a "normal year", you can expect to see squid the first week of July and they'll hang out until late august when they begin to move out. Keep us posted on how you do using squid lures - I never had any luck with them.

  8. Hey all, I’m an experienced fisherman from the northeast traveling to St. Pete Beach in early April. I will be fishing from the surf and am looking to hook into some big Jacks. I’m not too aware of what is around this region of Florida during this time of the year but I’m hoping to see some big Jacks. If Jacks will be running the beach during this time, how should I target them? Thanks
  9. Interestingly enough, as a child I always used to stick my fingers in their mouths and they would never bite. I couldn't have tried harder to get one to bite me and they never would....I guess I was a dumb kid but found some interesting information
  10. Hey all, This question go out to all who have experience or intel on fishing the south beaches of Florida. Within the next few weeks I will be traveling to the beaches of southern Florida. I am looking to surf cast off the beach for just about whatever bites! I have every piece of fishing tackle a striped bass fisherman could want, however I am extremely ignorant on what to fish down south to target the sport fish of Florida. I plan on bringing a selection of lures to cover the water column but I was curious as to what you all would recommend to bring with me. Thanks
  11. Hey all, Just wondering when you usually catch your first striper of the year in any given state. Just curious, Thanks
